The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is responsible for building, maintaining and operating the highway systems in Florida. Part of operating the highway system is managing emergency incidents in accordance with the Florida Open Roads Policy. The Severe Incident Response Vehicle (SIRV) Team was created to provide an immediate FDOT Incident Command presence on the scene of severe incidents affecting I-95, I-75 and I-595 in Broward County and on I-95 in Palm Beach County. The SIRV Team is dispatched by the SMART SunGuide Transportation Management Center. SIRV responds 24 hours a day, seven days a week to severe traffic incidents, such as full highway closures, fatalities, overturned commercial trucks, and any other event that may last longer than 2 hours. This brochure explains the SIRV Team's role in incident command, its hazmat mitigation services, its role in the maintenance of traffic, and its roadway repair services.
